Libyans say few questions being asked about attack
Washington Post ^ | Oct. 2, 2012 | By Michael Birnbaum and Anne Gearan

BENGHAZI, Libya — Three weeks after the attack that killed four Americans in this city, the investigation of its causes remains in its initial stages, with just a handful of suspects detained, the crime scenes minimally secured and Walid Faraj waiting for a phone call from someone, anyone, asking him what he saw on the night he was injured while protecting the U.S. diplomatic post here.

Faraj, a member of the militia that local officials tasked with securing Americans in Benghazi, said he saw the attack nearly from start to finish. But neither American nor Libyan investigators have paid him a visit, even as he fears that the perpetrators know who he is. . .

Meanwhile, an FBI team flown into Libya remains in Tripoli, hundreds of miles from Benghazi. A Libyan official involved in the inquiry said Tuesday that he was aware of only three suspects in custody. Meanwhile, members of the militant group suspected of playing a primary role in the attack have gone underground, apparently taking their weapons with them.

Faraj said he wondered whether anyone was trying to find out what happened the evening that U.S. Ambassador J. Christopher Stevens was killed along with three other Americans.

“Since that day, nobody has called, nobody cared,” said Faraj, 28, who lost a tooth in the attack and whose legs are peppered with small wounds from the firefight. “How is it the Americans didn’t anticipate anything?”

I thought that irate Libiyan civilians had attacked the various militia headquarters and burned them out in some cases. I guess the powers that be are glad the citizens are angry enough to do what they have been afraid to do.

Oh Please.

Obama's Arab Spring is going exactly like it was planned. Egypt, Libya and soon to be Iraq and Syria.

The attacks on America came too soon but Obama is doing everything he can to hide the truth.

They aren't morons, they are traitors.

It ain't stupidity. Not by a longshot!

The move is on to consolidate the Muslim world under the Muslim Brotherhood.

People still believe 0bama's foreign policy is simply bumbling and incompetence.

0bama has set Israel up the bomb...

Sept. 11, 2012

Netanyahu gets the cold shoulder.

U.S. has no right to block Israel on Iran: Netanyahu

The embassy in Cairo puts out an apology for a movie most of the rioters know nothing about.

Former deputy national security adviser: US response to embassy attack ‘bizarre and unacceptable’

0bama sent a letter to Tehran assuring them that the U.S. will do nothing to help Israel. That takes that off of the table removing a big worry for them that might have made them think twice. Iran is good to go now with 0bama's blessing.

We don't support Israeli attack, US tells Iran

The "movie" turns out to be a red herring excuse to cover for the rioters.

CNN: Protests against film a ‘diversion. Attack was planned’

Quite a day of unfortunate coincidences. Israel was rebuffed and there were signals being sent to the MB and Iran. 0bama is giving the "go ahead" to the Muslim world to take out Israel.

Obama Admin Transferred 3,000 Detainees to Afghan Gov't Control Day Before 9/11

UNREAL… Obama Invites Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood President to Meet Next Week – Refuses to Meet Netanyahu

The White House hands Iran's Ahmadinejad a global megaphone

REPORTS: No Live Ammo for Marines

-------------------------------------------------------

CNN: Protests against film a ‘diversion. Attack was planned’

Egypt intelligence warns (on Sept 4th) of attacks on Israel, US embassies

Congress was warned about Libya last month

-------------------------------------------------------

U.S. denies premeditation report
"The Obama administration is flatly denying a blaring British newspaper report that the U.S. diplomats in Libya were killed as a result of a “continuing security breach,” and that “credible information” about possible attacks had been ignored. A U.S. official told POLITICO: “There's no intelligence indicating that the attack in Benghazi was premeditated.”"

Is that all incompetence? Or did it take planning to make all that happen?
Cloward & Pliven strategy and community organizing on a global scale?

This isn't just about getting re-elected, that's certainly a side benefit, this is about the big enchilada. No more Israel. The United States of the Muslim Brotherhood in the ME. ie the new Caliphate.

Thanks for the links. The lawyer Michael Ratner is a fellow traveler of Eric Holder and Obama. With his work at Guantanamo, sponsored in part by Holder's law firm, Ratner may have started a chain of events that will seriously damage Obama.

Consistency never has been a mark of stupidity. If the diplomats who have mishandled our relations with Russia were merely stupid, they would occasionally make a mistake in our favor.  — James Forrestal

“Since that day, nobody has called, nobody cared.” Why is it necessary to send in the FBI? We have CNN reporters on the scene. In addition to personal diaries is it possible that there was classified information at the consulate in Benghazi that someone in our government would care about? Only if it would embarrass the Obamawan. Prepare for a bumpy ride. Where are the clowns, send in the clowns
Don’t bother, they’re here.

-—— We have CNN reporters on the scene——

CNN was given the diary. The question that should be asked is........ who was the giver?

Obama wasted no time in counter-attacking whom he felt was responsible -
The First Amendment of the United States Constitution!

That alone should be cause to immediately remove him from office.

Whitewash, coverup, media blackout... anything to protect Obama/Clinton.

Film's Fault
CIA's Fault
Intelligence Failure's Fault
First Amendment's Fault...

According to the press - when they report on this at all, it is anybody's fault but Obama/Clintons...

Make this clear...

Obama/Clinton's Fault!

or Americans have witnessed more people wanting arms. Wonder where the wmds are? Since panetta said we lost those in syria, and libya, wonder where those weapon will show up? Have to believe there is information on who has those wmds, and information known as to the whereabouts of those wmds. Have to also believe zer0/mb, clinton/huma/mb, and probably panetta want the weapons to appear where they will do the most damage to help progress their agenda whether reelected or not. Is to be a next year of 13? Prayerfully not!
